Fedora :: Kernel - Scrolling The Browser Window Incredibly Slow

Apr 15, 2011

Is anyone else seeing high CPU usage with this new kernel while using Firefox 4? I didn't have this problem before this update. If I boot into the previous kernel there is no problem surfing the web with Firefox 4

This kernel update has made browsing the web very slow and scrolling the browser window incredibly slow to the point of frustration.

Should this be reported as a bug or an issue with the new kernel or has anyone already reported this issue?

Ubuntu :: Internet Working Incredibly Slow?

Jun 18, 2011

I have been noticing recently that my net speed has been getting slower and slower. I have disabled IPV6, cleared all caches and cookies but am not seeing any great difference. Last week I installed Knoppix 6.4.4 to have a look at it, and was amazed at the speed of the net -- one major difference was a 10 Mb pdf I was trying to download. In maverick using Firefox the download failed 10 times at between 1.2 and 1.4 megs. In Knoppix it completed first time in about 4 minutes. I have compared page loading speed and pages load on average 6-8 times faster than in Ubuntu. I have not altered any other settings.

Ubuntu :: Virtualbox Incredibly Slow - Scratchy And Unresponsive

Mar 18, 2010

Has anyone had any issues when they freshly install Windows XP in VirtualBox?

I just created a system in vBox with an AMD x4 925 2.8Ghz Quadcore Processor (with AMD Virtualization on). I gave the system 3 cores, 3GB of RAM, 128mb video memory, turned off all acceleration and gave it a 60GB virtual drive.

Following installation I have noticed the vbox is unusable. I click on the start menu for example and it takes 3-4 seconds to show up. Furthermore, just moving the mouse shows a frame rate at, what I would guess, around 5 frames/sec.

This is strange as I have given this machine very good specs.

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.2 - Incredibly Slow HDD And Boot Time Increased

Mar 30, 2011

My hardware:
AMD Athlon X2 4800+ (2,5 GHz) + 2 GB DDR2 memory
MSI K9N V2 (nforce 520)

I'm using OpenSUSE 11.2 with all the released updates are installed. I've got an Windows Xp SP3 on the same hard drive and it's works fine. S.M.A.R.T. says the hdd is 100%. A few days ago I realized that the boot time increased and the hard drive operations takes way too much time. So currently the boot sequence takes 11-14 minutes.

I've already tried to solve this problem but no effect:
1.) cleaned up the root directory to create more free space
2.) plugged the sata cable to another port
3.) changed from AHCI to IDE and reverse in BIOS settings
4.) added ahci, sata_nv into the /etc/sysconfig/kernel file and created a new initrd
5.) searched for problems in the syslog
Just to imagine how slow is currently the system/hdd:

Ubuntu Installation :: 11.04 Desktop Edition - System Running Incredibly Slow

Jun 18, 2011

I have just installed 11.04 desktop edition on a freshly built machine with a 3GHz processor and 8GB ram. It has 8GB swap space and a 250GB partition which runs along side a 750GB Windows partition. The problem is it is running incredibly slowly. The interface freezes up every few minutes and stuff takes ages to load. I have run Ubuntu on computers with less than a 1GHz processor before and it has been fine. Should I just reinstall?

Ubuntu Networking :: Lucid - Accessing Samba Shares Incredibly Slow From Win7

May 16, 2010

Since "upgrading" (ha!) to lucid I have had a number of problems that I am working my way through. The latest is accessing samba shares from a Win7 PC. It takes minutes to open the requested share from the Windows 7 PC. File transfers, once the directory is accessed, can be measured in bytes. It is an absolute trickle.

AFAIK the smb.conf is unchanged and, in any case, there is no problem accessing the shares from another linux PC.

Debian Multimedia :: Smooth Scrolling Web Browser

Currently using ice weasel on debian jessie with xfce and I have a near perfect system other than this issue. Is it possible to fix this?

I have tried disabling hardware acceleration.

Networking :: Installed Ubuntu 10.04 And Networking Is Incredibly Slow

Aug 25, 2010

I have been a Linux user in the past for a good couple of years but I got back into gaming and left Linux for a while. Now after coming back to it, I have just installed Ubuntu 10.4 and all networking just seems incredibly slow.

I've browsed the internet as much as I can and found those Firefox pipelining tweaks all over the place; trying them makes no difference whatsoever so I decided to take a temporary solution and resort to OpenDNS but even this feels obviously too slow for the broadband I have.

Not only with loading web pages in Firefox, I have also tried downloading files from the internet and trying Google Chrome. But neither of these were right either.

I'm almost 90% sure it's not my BTHomeHub that's causing the problems because when using Windows, it works just fine and internet speeds are perfectly normal. The only OS I'm having this speed problem with is Ubuntu.

I'm unsure as to what evidence/help I can post, pings, IPv4/IPv6 information or WiFi configurations?

Just wondering though, this seems to be a big problem with Ubuntu 10.04 so has anyone had and solved this problem before and returned their internet speeds to what they should be?

Ubuntu :: Slow/Erratic Scrolling In Chromium?

Apr 23, 2010

I just upgraded from 8.04 to the lucid beta (yes I was slow to move on that), and chromium's scrolling is HORRID! It jumps and skips both when I use the mouse wheel or when I drag the scroll bar.

Any ideas? Firefox scrolls just fine. It makes using chromium very unpleasant because any time I have to scroll I feel like I'm back in 1992.

I did some searching and found lots of complaints, so I thought I was close to an answer until I looked at the date, it was late 2008/early 2009 when this was an issue.

Ubuntu :: Graphical Operations (Scrolling / Moving) Slow

Jan 31, 2011

On one Ubuntu desktop 10.04 I got an ati 4800 series using the proprietary drivers. All was working well until a reboot a couple of days ago. I am not sure if it had something to do with one of the massive updates I installed on that day. After that, operations like scrolling, moving windows etc have been dramatically slow. I tried to boot from live cd with 10.04 and everything seemed ok.

Debian Multimedia :: No 3d Acceleration Intel 945 + Slow Scrolling Web Pages?

Mar 9, 2011

Running Squeeze, with kernel 2.6.32-5-amd64. I do not find out how to enable 3d acceleration with my Intel 945 embedded graphics card. Also having very (i mean VERY) slow scrolling in some webpages (such as apple website, or danielestulin.com website). I tested the following "Hardware Acceleration Stress Test" with Epiphany, Iceweasel and Firefox, and the best rate I get is only 3 fps...[URL].. I tested the Chess game included with default Squeeze install, running in 3d mode, and definetely there is no acceleration at all...

Here's my glxinfo output:
name of display: :0.0
display: :0  screen: 0

Fedora :: 11 Gnome Window Manager Is Very Slow With S3 ProSavage DDR Video Card

Sep 4, 2009

The Gnome Window Manager worked fine with the ProSavage video card under Fedora 10. But after switching to Fedora 11, the Gnome Window Manager's response to graphics requests (such as selecting or moving a window) has been very slow and choppy, when running from the Live CD and from the Hard Drive. The hardware configuration is the following:

-S3 ProSavage video card
-AMD Athlon(tm) XP-M 1700+ 1.46 GHz

After installing Fedora 11 to my Hard Drive, I installed the following packages, hoping that would fix the problem:


After installing the packages and restarting my machine, Fedora 11 detected ProSavage card. The 'savage' driver was loaded during startup (according to dmesg) and the ProSavage card appeared in the Display configuration, when I selected System|Administration|Display. Unfortunately, I didn't detect much improvement. Here's the entry from dmesg: [drm] Initialized savage 2.4.1 20050313 for 0000:01:00.0 on minor 0
As a comparison, I tried running the Fedora 11 Live CD on a box with an ATI Radeon video card and the Gnome Window Manager was smooth and responsive.

Fedora :: Very Slow Boot With Kernel

Mar 6, 2010

I installed kernel via a yum update this morning. When I rebooted, the machine appeared to freeze with a single blinking underscore cursor. I used a live CD to edit grub.conf and reboot into the old kernel, which started normally. Later, I tried booting into the new kernel via grub again. After about two minutes, the blinking cursor is replaced by the normal boot screens and the machine works fine. This is on a seven year old PC with AMD Althon XP 2000+, 768MB RAM, VIA KT400 chipset and the NVIDIA 173xx driver from RPM Fusion.

Fedora :: Kernel Plato Won't Work - Machine Became Unstable & Slow

Feb 18, 2011

Is it possible, on a much older computer to hit a point at which any newer kernel just won't work, where a lesser one once did? (or for that matter the whole OS) - OS is F14. The reason I ask is that I've never had a problem w/ any, (kernel) until now. I'm running a PIII w/ 512M (max) - video is Matrox Graphics, Inc. MGA G400/G450 (rev 04)

In the process of trying to fix another problem, I allowed the updates. After, my machine became unstable & slow to respond (w/ drive wanting to run a LOT) I tried rebooting, thinking that it needed to clear some garbage I may have caused. That SEEMED to help but after a while it started again. Seeming to be intermittent, so I tried the older kernel & it all stopped (or so it seem, so far) Also, I removed the "offending" one & was wondering how to skip over it?
